About

Why Should You Back This Project? Simply Put:

  • We’re giving great rewards
  • The Trump Presidency Survival Kit leverages the power of art and humor - Thomas Jefferson said, “Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions.” With this in mind, the kit was designed to use satire’s unique power to shed a spotlight on the absurd, bizarre, even scary, reality under the Trump-era administration.
  • The project is timely - Even the ACLU is taking a stand against what they call “Trump’s War on Equality” and millions are standing with them as part of the resistance. We are committed to change as well. Our weapon is satire and comes in a box. We consider this to be funny, but also very poignant.

We're including 10 items the Trump Presidency Survival Kit. The items in the kit will help you be a rockstar protester, mock Trump-era logic, even keep gropers away. The items include:

  • Dry-Erase Protest Sign: You’re going to be attending A LOT of protests now that Agent Orange is in the oval office. Portable and re-usable. Be protest-ready instantly.
  • Trump-Era Healthcare Plan: Trump Presidency Survival branded mini first-aid kit: way better than what you’d get with Trumpcare. Likely your best option at staying safe until the impeachment party.
  • Grope Repellent: A genuine Trump mask, appropriately stamped with the words “too ugly to grope.” Yep, take that Donald.
  • Mini-Flask: Appropriately marked, “45 Proof.” Perfect size for taking on a protest march, or fitting in a tiny presidential hand.
  • Map of Routes to Canada: Because 304 electoral college voters just gave him the nuclear codes. Yeah, a guy with Twitter road-rage has those.
  • Impeachment Petition: Let’s speed this process up!
  • Trump Presidency Condoms: A condom is our only hope without Planned Parenthood support—The Trump Presidency Survival Condom supplies you with double barrier protection; not only does the condom provide the birth control you expect—but Trump's disturbingly angry face on the package will undoubtedly kill the moment. Mission accomplished!
  • SPECIAL Trump Survival Guide: A mini-booklet taken from bestselling author Gene Stone’s book, “The Trump Survival Guide.”
  • Orange Trump Stress Ball: Included by popular demand. One side has an angry orange Trump face, and the other side says, “resist stress.”
  • Golden-Shower Shower Cap: The finest “made in China” shower cap in a sealed Trump Presidency Survival Kit package.
  • Reminder of Your Freedom of Speech: Just in case CNN, New York Times, Politico and other news outlets continue to be blocked for what Trump calls “fake news”—we’re including a commemorative branded First Amendment so we can remember when freedom of speech was held in high regard. Suitable for framing.

 

So This is Satire and Art?

Yes, we consider it a satirical and poignant piece of art. And a reminder that we all were there when the United States was hijacked and we had to stand-up for the rights of everyone. Think of it as a collector’s item, that commemorates that really bizarre presidency.

We shall overcomb!
We shall overcomb!

Cool, How is The Funding Used?

Primarily to cover the cost of getting the kit in your hands. We want to make the kit widely available to everyone and we are launching on Kickstarter to cover the initial costs of materials, production and printing. You get the kit as a reward at the lowest price per item as the rewards.

Risks and challenges

Since this is a parody, we think we have a lot of leeway, but we also want to make sure we don't get sued by any—say—"thin skinned" newly elected politician. We're making sure all art is original or licensed, and that all falls under the protection of parody and commentary laws.

We're also working to get the graphics right and drawing inspiration from some vintage cold war art. We've sourced a lot of the parts to the kit and want to make sure it feels branded and that people really get the parody and feel involved and supporting of the project.

Other challenges are going to be making sure the production and printing is done at high standards, shipping is handled as timely as possible, and that basic legal counseling on fair-use, parody, and commentary laws is in place to protect us.

We're excited about this project and hopeful we'll get the backing to launch this product. We hope people "get it" and think it's the perfect gift, collector item, or conversation starter.
